Arizona Bioscience News: COVID-19 in Arizona

October 22, 2020

By Matt Ellsworth

COVID-19 is spreading at its fastest rate in Arizona since June, leading an Arizona State University expert to say the state is in the middle of a surge. Meanwhile, University of Arizona researchers have found that coronavirus antibodies can last for months after a person has recovered from COVID-19, potentially providing long-term immunity. Researchers at both UArizona and ASU will benefit from a gift of $1 million each from the Tohono O’odham Nation of southern Arizona to help develop rapid tests.
